Atheist Quote Memes

I call these "atheist quotes" but I acknowledge that not all of them were spoken from an atheist perspective. However, I believe they are all great quotes that have stood the test of time and were spoken by wise men and women. Most of all, they were all relevant to me in my atheism  journey and speak to fighting ignorance and narrow-mindedness.

Atheist Quote Memes

Christopher Hitchens on morality

Christopher Hitchens - Religion borrows its morality from us, not we from religion.

If an "objective morality" is god-given, then why does it appear to change with time?

Darwin on ignorance

Charles Darwin - Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge: it is those who know little, and not those who know much, who so positively assert this or that problem will never be solved by science.

How better to see this quote in action, than by scanning social media.

Carl Sagan on celibacy in the clergy

Carl Sagan - A celibate clergy is an especially good idea, because it tends to suppress any hereditary propensity toward fanaticism.

One simply has to look at what has happened in the Catholic Church to see that a celibate clergy cannot be a good idea.

Christopher Hitchens on books writing.

Christopher Hitchens - Everybody does have a book in them, but in most cases that's where it should stay.

This probably holds true for movies, art and music too!

What is the real poison?

Skeptic Heretic - Sometimes it's not what you drink but what you are taught.

Where teaching is designed to make you feel different, or special, at the expense of those with different beliefs, it cannot be a good thing.

Quote by Garcia about how the gods we've created have limited our progress

Hector A. Garcia - Human potential is so vast, but we may have limited ourselves by the gods we've created.

So true. How much has religion retarded human progress? It is hard to quantify but still happens today!

Monty Python quote

Monty Python - "All things dull and ugly
All creatures short and squat
All things rude and nasty
The lord god made the lot!"

The argument against intelligent design is well summarised in this quote.

Carl Sagan quote: Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence

Carl Sagan - Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.

Whether it is the evidence for god or for miracles that contradict the laws of nature, there had better be some solid proof.

Cormac McCarthy's brilliant quote on how humans create gods.

Cormac McCarthy - Where men can't live gods fare no better.

One of the greatest quotes from the book called The Road by Cormac McCarthy.

Aristotle's view on the passage of time and the transience of things.

Aristotle - Time crumbles things; everything grows old under the power of time and is forgotten through the lapse of time.

Time ignores NOTHING in its relentless march.

A quote on happiness by Aristotle.

Aristotle - Happiness depends on ourselves.

Do not wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy. Love life!

Quote: Aristotle

Aristotle - Criticism is something we can avoid easily by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing..

Follow your path with conviction.
